For those of you who do not know, I have been part of a Folksy Fooler Gang to list an item a day during April. Well - phew! we've got there and were going to have a virtual folksy forum party tonight to celebrate completion! You're welcome to join us!
To get us in the party mood, I asked follow folksy crafters for party themed items, had got a huge response, obviously we are a happy, fun loving bunch at Folksy.
Well you can't have a party without cake, decorations and music!
And more cake, decorations, glitzy party accessories and even some party games.
Pop along and check out these great folksy crafters!
Crafting and selling of these items is a hobby for me. I'm a working Mum, with lovely children and fabulous Hubby. I have had a passion since childhood for fossils and gemstones, and have been collecting for many years. As a family we go on fossil hunting expeditions, but there is only so much you can keep for yourself.
My Husband and I are also fans or anything oriental and have collected Netsuke for many years, both vintage and modern items, but again there are only so many that you can keep, so am hoping our passion for these wonderful items is something others might also enjoy. Netsuke ('netskei) is a small carving usually made from wood or ivory and originally developed in Japan. This form of small sculpture served as toggle in Japan for over a period of more than three hundred years, for both functional and aesthetic purposes.
I enjoy knitting and working with yarn and wool, making items from simple scarfs through to hand made handbags. Inspiration often taken from nature or by the look of how differing yarns, wool and other products work together. Each of these items will be unique and guaranteed hand made by myself.
